|Cake in preparation|
Before serving the cake at the party we sprinkled on some Heston Blumenthal popping candy (from Waitrose) which was a huge hit with guests.

Those of you who follow this blog will remember that I posed the question of which wig to get because I couldn't decide. In the end I went for the blonde to pink fade thanks to your feedback.
I must confess that I played around with pink eyebrows too which looked appalling. Mr Zissou asked if the pink on my eyebrows was medication; needless to say I ditched that idea!
|Giant balloons: too expensive to fill|
Before the party I asked some friends (that awesome Binders Full Of Women couple from Halloween) to take a few pics of Mr Zissou and I. Conventional wisdom (i.e. Pinterest) suggests that you're only allowed cutesy couple photos if you're getting married, but to hell with that, I want them on my birthday. We had matching outfits, we played with balloons, and I might even frame them. Deal with it, Pinterest.

I was spoiled with some lovely presents including this playful cat necklace from my friends, who clearly understand my love of cats and jewellery:
